What is a Private Placement Subscription Agreement?
A private placement subscription agreement is a legal document that describes the terms and conditions of accepting funds from an investor. The investor agrees to provide capital for a business in exchange for a return on investment.
Different steps may be taken when negotiating a private placement subscription agreement. It’s also crucial for both parties to know what they can expect from investors once they have signed an agreement of this nature.

The Company is currently a reporting entity, quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board and trades below USD $5.00 per share, and consequently falls within the definition of a “penny stock” contained in Rules 15g-1 to 15g-9 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as amended (the “Exchange Act”).
The Purchaser, as principal, has agreed to subscribe for and purchase securities of the Company at the subscription price and upon the terms and conditions as set out in this Agreement, as a negotiated extension of the terms and basis of the previous Private Placement Subscription Agreement executed between the Parties on December 24, 2013.

The Purchaser has agreed to purchase from the Company, and the Company has allocated to the Purchaser, 1,666,667 shares of common stock, par value USD $0.001 per share in the capital of the Company (the “Securities”), at a price of USD $0.18 per Security for the total amount of USD $300,000.06 (the “Purchase Price”).
The Purchase Price is to be used solely by the Company for the purpose of implementing an agreed business plan, specifically the matters referred to below in paragraph 1.7.
The Company will deliver to the Purchaser and its nominee, certificates (or “book entry” confirmation) representing the Securities within five (5) business days of receipt of the Purchase Price payment.
The Company shall record Precept Fund Management SPC for and on behalf of Prescient Fund Segregated Portfolio as the registered holder thereof.
The terms and conditions, which govern the Securities, will be referred to on the certificates representing the Securities.
The issuance of the Securities will not restrict or prevent the Company from obtaining any other financing, nor from issuing additional securities or rights at any time.
Use of the proceeds of the Securities:
No expenses will be incurred or paid by the Company except in conformance with the agreed budget and the written approval of Stephen J. Barber or his designees or any successor CEO or Mark L. Meriwether, as previously approved by the Board of Directors of the Company; and
the implementation of the Company’s business development strategy to achieve the Company’s previously announced desire to move its listing to the NASDAQ Exchange as part of its previously announced industry consolidation strategy.
